Studs Terkel on the Sound of a Human Voice
Studs Terkel is legend in the world of public media. The late oral historian interviewed thousands of people from all walks of life during his lifetime. You could say he’s a connoisseur of the human voice.
In this era of Auto-Tuned singing and electronic guidance systems and mic’d elementary school teachers, we can feel disconnected from each other. Human contact is a one-off. This animated short from StoryCorps shares one of Mr. Terkel’s hope-filled stories about the power of the unfiltered human voice, a baby’s voice, in our modern life.
